My name is Eric and I like smoked anything. My very first out door cooking implement was a Thermos gas grill. Ya, I know Boo ! HIss ! but I still use it when I want to fire up some braughts or sausages. About 10 years ago I got a Weber 22" kettle and my favorite is a Brinkmann 2 door square smoker. I had a summer in February BBQ in late Feb. I sent out the Evite when it was in the mid 70s in January. Unseasonably warm for these parts. Ironicly it rained. I stumbled into this forum looking for traditional kalua pulled pork from a smoker and found a whole world of tips and tricks for my favorite pass time. Actually I'm mostly on the eating side as a buddy of mine smokes a lot of ribs and has a blog. "Rex's rib review" if anybody cares. Any way I'm going to start having a lot more pork butt parties now that I've learned all these cool mods for my smoker. P.S. I sent out the Evite to about 16 people thinking that maybe 10 would show up which is doable here being it's indoors because it's finally raining. Well all but one are going to show up. It should be interesting, fun but interesting.
